Forget Me Not
Adorned with Beautiful NatureFeel The Butterflies
5 + 2
“What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”
Forget Me Not. A colloquial denomination of the flower Myosotis, this collection is a humble attempt to recreate and capture the memories of the ephemeral beauty of nature. It was believed back in the 15th century that this small, five-petalled flower had psychedelic powers over the mind with people often finding that once the flower is worn, you would not be forgotten by your lover. Like the famous star-crossed lovers of Romeo and Juliet (the famous Shakespearean tragedy from which the above quote has been excerpted), 5 + 2 envisions that any recipient of this unique piece of jewellery will always be in the mind of their beloved.
Perhaps more in tune with the floral, nature-oriented design of this collection, Forget Me Not serves as a reminder of the awe-inspiring power and beauty of Earth. A quote from David Brower, a prominent conservationist, states that “we don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children”. Driven by 5 + 2's commitment to environmentalism and our love for the aesthetics of nature, the Forget Me Not Collection, adorned with beautiful flower petals, leaves and more fantastic creations of nature, is meticulously embellished with 18-karat gold and sustainable gemstones. In the extensive and often overwhelming history of Earth's 4.5 billion years of history, we created the Forget Me Not Collection to act as a vehicle to renew our sense of purpose along the tumultuous and perceived infinitive timeline of this humble planet we all call home. Expertly crafted by our exceptional artisans, our unique floral and nature-inspired design employs a combination of pear-shaped and marquise cuts which are then transformed into petals, leaves and wings which further accentuates the centre stone. With a scintillating intensity that rivals even the brightest of stars in the night sky, the Forget Me Not Collection is the epitome of terrestrial and celestial indulgence.
Reconnect and be the garden in which flowers blossom forever.
